La Tri­en­nale di Mi­lano

La Tri­en­nale is a de­sign and art mu­seum set among the green­ery of Parco Sem­pi­one. The space hosts ex­hi­bi­tions and events on con­tem­po­rary Ital­ian de­sign, ar­chi­tec­ture and ur­ban plan­ning, high­light­ing the re­la­tion­ship be­tween art and in­dus­try. Not to miss is de Chirico’s Fon­tana dei Bagni Mis­te­riosi ( Foun­tain of Mys­te­ri­ous Baths) in the mu­seum’s gar­den.

Pirelli Han­garBic­occa

Han­garBic­occa is a for­mer in­dus­trial plant con­verted into a space for con­tem­po­rary art. Ex­hibits change fre­quently, though Ger­man artist Anselm Kiefer’s large-scale in­stal­la­tion The

is on per­ma­nent dis­play. Its seven gi­ant tow­ers made of re­in­forced con­crete trace a jour­ney of spir­i­tual ini­ti­a­tion, al­lud­ing to the myth of cre­ation in an­cient Jewish texts. The mu­seum sits on Mi­lan’s pe­riph­ery, but there’s a restau­rant serv­ing char­cu­terie and cheeses and Ital­ian wines for the peck­ish.

Gal­le­ria Massimo De Carlo

Massimo De Carlo is one of Italy’s most prom­i­nent art deal­ers. For more than 30 years, he has helped forge re­la­tion­ships be­tween artists and arts in­sti­tu­tions around the world. Many of the artists he rep­re­sents have achieved in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion, in­clud­ing Mau­r­izio Cat­te­lan, the sculp­tor fa­mous for his taxi­der­mied horses, and Ge­orge Condo, who de­signs al­bum cov­ers for Kanye West. De Carlo’s sec­ond gallery in Mi­lan is housed in Palazzo Bel­gioioso, which is cur­rently show­cas­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion by Ai Wei­wei (un­til Nov 18). The third forth­com­ing Mi­lan gallery should be equally fab­u­lous.
